Florida Dreaming


With two very active kids, this winter has taken its toll on me. I am so over it!!! Our mini vacay to Florida last week was a welcome and rejuvenating retreat, but now all I'm doing is daydreaming about moving there. In fact, I have my whole home already designed for said move.


This was the cover to our hotel guest book and instantly I knew where I had seen it over 9 years ago. Yes, I can remember crazy ass design elements from homes, museums, hotels, etc., but ask me a simple question and I'm brain dead. In fact, my son Charlie helps me on a day to day basis. He remembered our room number, our flight number, and the airport we were flying to. Can you believe he had to step in for me, when the person checking us in asked me where we were going!?! Uh...I don't know. It's like I'm his mentally disabled daughter. He's always shocked at how forgetful I am...I can't help that my head is in the clouds. Okay, okay...I digress. 


The Bonnet House in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida is where the image was taken from. We went there for a wedding 9 or was it 10 years ago. It was amazing and has imprinted its artistic charm into my memory.


HELLO YELLOW!!


A visual wonderland in every nook and cranny (do people still use that expression or am I a dork?).



That door!


Every ceiling had a fresco or bright bold color...LOVE!



In my design world, every bookshelf should be painted. 


And can I have one of these when I grow up? I'd fill it with birds and butterflies...fa, la, la, la. These were just a few images of The Bonnet House I sourced from Pinterest. They are my inspiration for a daydream beach home in Florida. 

And the point of my story...enjoy the clouds!
